Whimsical faerie house

Postby Duck » Thu Jul 16, 2015 8:04 am

Came across this small house deep in the secluded woods. Didn't want to disturb the occupants so I opted not to knock. Let me know what you think.

No, why? :? heh, heh...

This is my first attempt at a concept I thought about as I was photographing those mushrooms I posted earlier. I whipped this up to see how it would look and what kind of reaction. I know it's been done before but...

I like it a lot Duck. Left me just kinda waiting for some small fae creature to come out the door.

You did a lot cleaner job that I think I could have accomplished.
My only critique comment would be that the window angle/perspective doesn't look quite right to my eye. That part of the tree trunk looks like it is more head-on/perpendicular to the eye than the window is.

Failure means you tried. Success means you need to set higher goals for yourself.
